Quick Crochet Gifts

It is crunch time for knitters and crocheters! We need to get those special handmade gifts done and fast! So to help you out a little bit, I am sharing some of my favorite quick projects that would be perfect gifts this holiday season.


Comfy Crochet Cowl



This cowl is a staple in my winter weather wardrobe. A big hook and big yarn make this comfy cowl work up very quickly. I remember making a couple of these a day during craft show seasons. My favorite yarn to make these cowls with is Baby Alpaca Grande. The yarn band calls for a size K crochet hook. If you like the big fluffy feel of this yarn, go up at least one size. I wrote this pattern using a size L crochet hook. This way you get all the nice alpaca fluff that makes this yarn amazing. One skein is enough to make a good size cowl. Pictured above is 2 skeins of the Baby Alpaca Grande.

Crochet Mittens



Another winter staple - mittens! This free pattern from Yarnspirations gives you all the details to make mittens for the whole family. Use Anthem or Encore to whip up these mittens for a great holiday gift.

Tunisian Headband



Toni Lipsey is the Tunisian Crochet Queen. She made this simple free pattern for a tunisian crochet ear warmer/headband. I have made several of these with Encore and Anthem. I would love to make some with Anthem Chunky though. Oh the soft squishy yarn would be amazing!

Find the pattern on her blog - TL Yarn Crafts.


3 Hour Mittens!



Make and Do Crew have a fabulous free pattern to crochet a pair of mittens in about 3 hours. AND she uses the waistcoat stitch that makes your crochet mittens look like they are knitted! I would love to try making these with Pacific Bulky. She also has another free pattern holding 2 strands of worsted weight together.

Find the patterns on the Make and Do Crew blog.



Happy Yarning!
